This course will provide you with a hands-on scaling experience designed to enhance scaling efficacy and proper ergonomics in order to prevent work related pain, musculoskeletal injuries and disability. Through video clips and hands-on participation using instruments with wider handles, attendees will learn reinforced scaling techniques in every quadrant on a typodont model attached to a portable simulation unit. Course includes a take-home manual.
1) Demonstrate advanced instrumentation techniques, ideal fulcrum rests and proper ergonomics to enhance precision, prevention and protection while scaling.
2) Understand the importance of using the larger muscle groups in the arms while scaling to enhance scaling efficacy and to protect the smaller muscle groups in the hands and wrists from repetitive motion injury.
